Marriage Hymn.
299

We join to pray, with wishes kind,

A blessing, Lord, from Thee,

On those who now the bands have twined,

Which ne’er may broken be.

We know that scenes not always bright

Must unto them be given;

But let there shine o’er all the light

Of love, and truth, and heaven.

Still hand in hand, their journey through,

Meek pilgrims may they go;

Mingling their joys as helpers true,

And sharing every woe.

In faith, and trust, and heart, the same,

The same their home above;

May each in each still feed the flame

Of pure and holy love.
